Brotherly Love

I finally went through the last bunch of pics from my trip to Chicago last week.  As mentioned in a previous post, one of the highlights of the trip was Millennium Park. As some people know, I was not a huge fan of the park, but it did have its redeeming qualities.  The best of, I think, being the water towers spraying water down on the children.  I probably spent most of my time in the park at this area.  I was able to sit back and observe the action and then capture the action mainly because of my new lens, the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 OS.  Many of you will not know what any of that means, but it is a killer lens.  I also added a Sigma 1.4x extender that gives means more reach.  In other words, I was able to take nice shots from a distance without getting my gear wet and not interfering with what I was shooting.  Tonight I'm showing a series of shots of a brother and his sister enjoying this area of the park.  I was amazed with the care I saw this boy showing to his sister.


  1. That's the kind of big brother we all hope to have.

  2. Very sweet pictures.

  3. I am loving that lens - you can now be a private investigator! Too bad you can't give copies of these pics to that little boy.
